Right, sod this idea of only writing interesting journals. Clearly that just means I don't bother updating.

This week I have done some stuff, the highlight has been retrieving my camera from having a clean in time for Carnival of Souls tomorrow.

Work wise things have been pottering along, but the week's excitement was the arrival today of a proper version of Adobe Creative Suite and a nice Wacom Graphics Tablet. Of course, I could hardly justify this, but it wasn't even my idea to order them - hurrah for the Orbital Mind Control Lasers.

It made me think of course that basically, other than putting a little bit of text on pictures, I hardly use Photoshop. I use it to import images and convert them from the camera's RAW format - but I don't do the editing, conversion to B&W etc. that I did when I didn't come in from an evening with ~200 photos.

I've just changed my LJ name, based partly on what I see in the mirror, and partly on the episode of ST:TNG that's on Sky at the moment. Following a quick google on the quote I discovered that there is a linguist (a bloke obviously) who is refusing to speak anything other than Klingon to his child until it reaches the age of three. Now, really, wtf...

On the gig front, since Slipknot/Slayer I've missed Wonderstuff, Bowling for Soup and of course Intrusion. This next week should hopefully have "Assorted goths/deathrockers", HIM and Scissor Sisters. The BBC seem to have shut down their "free tickets to gigs" scam - but I have proposed to them I pay no attention to this at all and just carry on as long as I can be bothered. This seems to be ok - as they like the latest set - http://www.bbc.co.uk/birmingham/music/2004/10/slayer_slipknot/ (avid viewers will have seen these pics before at better quality).

All you members of the Levellers fan club will be pleased to know that the next issue of "On The Fiddle" magazine should have some of my pics in. They're interested in reviews too - but I wonder if they'll want to use the one dreamfire did.

I have also lost half my brain. My typo count leads me to believe it's only downhill from here.

Stripey cat feeding soon, and perhaps if I'm lucky I can watch Sapphire and Steel with a huge stripey cat on my testicles.

Oh, final comment, anyone know any friendly photographers with studios? I'd like to get some experience of the environment.

I was going to say that icon really confused me.

I know :-) She's not updated all week - I thought you might have missed her.

Plus I'm feeling mischievous.

Why, how sweet of you. That's a rather good picture of her.

And yes, since you ask, I suppose I will graciously allow you to watch the Sapphire and Steel DVD that I lent Rob...

I'm a great photographer remember ;-)

lol. Do you have the other boxed set too?

Alas, no. But it's on my list.

Easily solved then. I'll buy it for you having missed your birthday. Then we are both win.

Sapphire & Steel

It's not on your wishlist with Amazon - let me know (by email or whatever) if it was once, and has been purchased - or just never made it there. I don't want you to end up with two.

Re: Sapphire & Steel

Sorry, I didn't mean that list, which was quite long enough already. So nobody's bought it for me. Yet. :-)

I've just changed my LJ name,

Not noticeably.

The "Name" listed on my journal, not the journal title, nor the username. It's not obvious on a friends view :-P

a bit off topic...

Finally have some news on photo pass for Necromantix in B'ham, you're on the guestlist +1 and should be down for a pass also! Sorry about the delay!
